Project underway to smarten up and improve bridge underpass at Wandsworth Town Station
Published: Friday, October 29, 2021
Work is now underway on a joint project involving Wandsworth Council and Network Rail to improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists whose journeys take them underneath the railway bridge at Wandsworth Town station.
The project, which is expected to complete before the end of the year, is for a significant refurbishment of the Old York Road bridge underpass area.
The proposed improvement works to the underside of the bridge include the replacement and repainting of all panels, the jet washing of walls, improvements to drainage and a smartening up of the streetscape.
The council will also be upgrading the lighting under the bridge to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.
The council is contributing £400,000 towards the overall cost of the scheme.
